Lighted Duck Decoy, Legal on opener?

Recommended Posts

orangestew

Has anyone seen these lighted duck decoys? Is it a joke or will it really work? It was in the one of the adds the other week. It has 40 led lights on it that fash 4 times a second. This is supposed to give off flash like a spinning wing decoy. I was just curious if this would fall under the motorized ban during the first week of the duck season or is this a way around that rule? confused.gif The DNR better quick make an addendum to the rule book before these catch on!

Yea who knows about the rule. What I do know is those things look absolutely retarded, and I would laugh my a$$ off if I ever saw someone using one.

Okay, here's the way I understand it: you can use the decoys with red blinkers on odd days and the green blinkers on even days. You cannot mix red and green blinkers in the same set as it would tend to confuse the birds. And you must never use red and green mixed near the end of the season as it might confuse Christmas shoppers. Whatever you do you must NOT display blinking yellows as it is an obvious caution-warning signal. It IS permissable to use a white light decoy to find your way out of the swamp.

Now you know.

Are you serious? I haven't seen these things yet. You would think it would scare the bejesus out of those early morning ducks.

I saw one at the game fair didnt look all that appealing to me. You never know they might have some scientific study that they conducted that says it should work. All i know is that i dont think i will ever own one. They look rediculous to me.

I bet a robo duck didnt look too appealilng when it was first brought out either, so who knows, maybe it would work.

Mallards on the blue light speical. some people will try just about any thing . blinking lights kinda makes me think if you set them up side by side its like a landing strip.

      Walleye numbers are strong, unfortunately the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food =  a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff
